There are few toys that accompany children for so many years. One above all is probably the ball, but also the soft toy or the favorite fabric doll, irreplaceable companion during the nights.
There are also toys that are literally consumed for what they are used, such as toy kitchens. It doesn’t matter whether they are male or female, the passion for cooking and imitating mothers and fathers in the kitchen is guaranteed fun for everyone.
You will have to get used to sitting on their tables, ordering the dishes and “eating” the delicacies they will prepare for you without forgetting to pay, leaving a large tip!
Growing up if you are lucky enough to have a garden or even a vegetable garden on the terrace, aromatic herbs and even some leaves of your beautiful houseplants will enter the kitchenette (in this case be careful because some can be poisonous). For Lego-loving kids, expect to see brick-based dishes!
The most frightening problem is when they will ask you to use water or to prepare dishes with pongo. I put some limits on this: every now and then yes, always no to avoid becoming the cleaning lady of the “restaurant”.
Anyhow the look of your children on Christmas morning or their birthday is priceless, when they find a kitchen all to themselves before their eyes.
Fortunately there are various prices so it is a manageable gift for all budgets and needs.
Toy kitchens made of wood
The wooden kitchens are among the most beautiful, because they do not get damaged, hardly break and are of the highest quality, without forgetting that, being very sturdy, they allow to be handed down between brothers and sisters.
Among the manufacturers of wooden kitchens we find brands that are a guarantee such as the German HAPE or KIDKRAFT or the English Leomark.

If you prefer the plastic option, here too you can indulge yourself both in terms of type and cost. It starts from a minimum of 20 euros up to the consti of wooden kitchens. Plastic kitchens often have more accessories than wooden ones, but they have the disadvantage of being less robust.
